“One of the staff opened their luggage and a roach crawled out of it. She almost cried.”
When questioned about why they had cockroaches in their suitcase, the unidentified husband said they were used to make a cream for his wife’s skin condition.
It was unknown what the condition was, but officials were told “they were part of an old folk remedy. You mix the roaches in some medicinal cream and put it on your skin."
This isn’t the first time a passenger has tried to smuggle something strange into their luggage.
The Transportation Security Administration in the United States once discovered a container of dead venomous snakes in a passenger's checked luggage.
What will happen to the cockroaches in unknown.
